April 1979

Exciting news--I finally uploaded some of my collages and paintings to my Brand New Etsy Shop! Finally!! Dang does listing take a while or what?? So far, I just have 4 items in there because I actually have already SOLD two pieces before I even opened my shop!!!! WHOOOO HOOOO
One of my work customers said that I'm a professional now ;) LOL Not a rich one, but at least I'm official. I've given most of my stuff away for trade, an now---I've taken the plunge into selling, I'm so excited! Did I say that already???
I am offering discounts off of multiple purchases for my Grand Opening, and I do offer shipping discounts, so please stop on by and check it out--AND check back over the next week as I plan to add things each night!
This is my latest work, done in conjunction with a little exercise my new friend Jane (who does some awesome cool collages herself!) came up with in an effort to expand my horizons and to challenge herself as well to create!
Who doesn't need a little motivation from time to time? Things are more fun when you do them with a friend. Over the next month or so, we are going to switch on and off taking turns issuing prompts for one another.
This prompt was just to use a magazine cutout or a few and leave it mostly un altered. I tried to leave the majority of it alone, but I just had to cut this 70's models hair off and give her a new "do" and some purdy new eyeshadow and curl those lashes!
She also needed a crown. Who doesn't??
This is an 11x14 painted collage so I couldn't get it all in my scanner.
"April 1979"
Reads: The letters you sent I carry with me. I just wish they were true. April 1979. Back Then, I believed in you.
Who knows where I come up with this stuff!!!!


I'm also starting a new blog--for featuring my for sale items---check that out too!!


Here's a dark but full version of my pink lady. Doesn't she look a little like Gwen Stefani?? LOL

Thanks Jane for the prompt!

You go, girl! I am so excited that you are on etsy - sharing your work with the whole world. I wish you all the best! Jane

Congratulaitons on opening your etsy shop. Good luck.

Also, thanks for the sweet comments on my blog about my home and garden the other day - if you saw the inside you would change your mind (overtaken by toddler toys and other paraphanelia!)

Congratulations on your Etsy shop AND your additional blog! I'm so glad you're "out there" now - you deserve this. I want so much to show my purchase of your artwork on my blog but I'm afraid the dd will see it and the surprise will be out, so I've got to wait until 9/6. I wish for you much success and I WILL be purchasing another one very soon.
